    i have my router, and about 5 pcs , using ntp to update there clocks

    i would like to have the pcs update their time from the router, that way i will only end up hitting the ntp servers about 20% of the time i currently do, saving abit of band width.

    Is there any way to do this?

    i have a WRT54GL if it makes much difference.

    thanks, mark.

    This topic has been discussed at length on this forum, search for ntp and you should find the answers.

    ntpd works

    I have one

    I wrote one a few a months ago and posted it here, but now I can't find the thread. I'll keep looking for the thread, but in the meantime I'll repost my ntpd files. I'm not sure how you ultimately want to use it (i.e, copy over the executable every time after a reboot or have a new firmware image built with it included).

    Thanks for the link to Rodney's archive. I wasn't aware that he had included any of my submissions until I saw this... :)

    Rodney's done a great job with compiling everything with the latest Teddy_bear K26 toolchains, including static builds for routers with older incomplete libraries probably not much difference for your tiny ntpd - and I have to admit I didn't try - to my surprise many binaries are interchangeable between K24 and K26 - I guess the library interfaces are the same.
